§ 52. Mr. Osborne
asked the Minister of Labour if he will make a statement on the revision of the data on which the cost-of-living index is based.
§ Mr. Isaacs
This is a matter on which I am hoping to have the advice of the Cost-of-Living Advisory Committee which has recently been reconstituted.
§ Mr. Osborne
Will the right hon. Gentleman tell the House what difference in the cost of living index would result if the food subsidy of £360 million were taken off?
